Fall Packaging

Last night I finished putting together one of the new Perfect Presentation templates - Tall Gable BoxI went with the PTI Falling Leaves set and made a box to compliment the card I made {here}.

The box is all tied up with a button and leaf garland. I made sure to tie the bow thru one handle so that the box will open without untying the garland.
I can just envision this box filled with pecan shortbread or pumpkin cookies - both make great sweet fall treats!  Now that I am thinking about these cookies I am probably going to have to make a batch soon - so yummy and I can not get the thought out of my head :>).

This template is available in formats for cutting machines and pdf.  I own the Cricut, but I went the pdf route on this one since I was away from most of my crafting supplies at the time.  The Tall Gable is mostly straight lines, so the majority of the cutting was done with my paper cutter, which made it very easy.  
Be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team who will have templates to share throughout the week:  Leigh Ann Baird, Kerri Michaud, Terri Moore, Alyssa Scritchfield, Rebecca Jensen, & Chris Olsen.
Plus, I am putting this one in for the Paper Player's Challenge this week - Anything Goes - gotta love that type of challenge :>)

    To answer your question from my PTI blog hop bag, I put the Mat Stack Die on the inside of the bag (cutting side towards the front of the bag) and ran it through the cuttlebug that way.
